Kerrion Franklin Releases Explicit Family Content
Kirk Franklin’s son, Kerrion Franklin, released audio on social media. The clip portrayed threatening words from the gospel legend to his son.
Kerrion’s post accompanied the clip. It reads:
“This is why I’m done. No father should speak to their children like this. If I have any issues it’s because of this type of treatment that I deal with behind closed doors,” the 32-year-old shared in the Instagram video on Saturday. According to Kerrion, the argument is nothing new for them.
He passionately added:
“Hanging up in my face, No apology, no compassion, no effort. Stop telling me to go home to my family I don’t even know where they live. I don’t think I’ll ever trust my father to be alone around him ever again. And I didn’t want to do this. I probably won’t release the entire recording because it’s too embarrassing that I’m even dealing with this. No matter what ppl think I pray my dad deals with his deep hatred toward me. I don’t feel safe around him at all. This recording is recent it is not from 2018 just to clarify. I’m going to learn from these experiences, live my life in peace and make beautiful art,” he continued.
Kerrion Franklin Feels Ostracized from Family
In a previousInstagram post shared days ago, Kerrion Franklin claimed that he was unable to access photos of himself and his family from his childhood.
“I know the damage you’ve been through even if I dunno what you been through,” he shared on Instagram. The upload, white text on a grey background stated, “I’m not allowed to have any childhood pictures of myself or my family. Some of the sh*t ii see yaw complain about is so surface. I’ve been through the fire.”
Kirk Franklin Issues Statement
Following Kerrion’s viral cry for attention, Kirk Franklin issued a public statement and apology in a video posted on social media. The gospel icon said “for many years we have had a toxic relationship with him as a family” and tried to tend to the “private family matter” through therapy and counseling.
Franklin explained that he “lost his temper” during an argument with his eldest son as a result of feeling “disrespected.” The singer admitted that he is “not perfect” and asked the public to keep him and his family in their prayers.
Wishing the Franklins all the best as they heal from past hurt.
